Pistoleta is a blend of white grape varietals; Roussanne, Marsanne, Viognier, and Grenache blanc. Planted in Southern Oregon’s Rogue Valley, winemaker/owner Herby Quady has been making this Rhone blend for nine vintages. After harvest, all the fruit was co-fermented together, primarily in stainless steel and just a smidge in French and Acacia oak barrels. The final blend has 45% Viognier, 23% Marsanne, 23% Roussanne and 9% Grenache blanc.

Bouquet and Palate:

This wine has such an interesting play between tart and sweet. Tart lime and kaffir leaves combine with floral notes of white flowers and jasmine. Ripe melons, apricots, and white peaches dance together with the floral and tart, creating a unique white wine blend with a textured mouthfeel and long finish.

Food pairing suggestions:

Drink this wine with anything spicy! Mexican food with jalapeños and salsa, Thai curry dishes, Indian food, etc. would all pair great with the Pistoleta.
